Trick or Treat (or Captions!)

It’s Halloween time and before everyone starts pulling out their Holiday stuff, we wanted to give you a chance to win some awesome Nigel & Serena t-shirts.

Here’s the challenge – create some hilarious captions for these two photos.  We’ll be using the best of the best to share on Facebook.  If we use yours, you’ll snag an amazing t-shirt!  So, give us your best captions (no theme necessary) and let the laughs begin!

Here’s a bit about our dynamic duo:
Serena is our upbeat mascot who is encouraging and optimistic. She can be annoyingly upbeat sometimes… but that’s how unicorns roll.
Nigel Doolittle is an under-achiever. He’s smart – but a total slacker. If he could major in sarcasm, he would.


PERRLA Complete Updates: References, Papers, & more

Happy Friday!  Early in the wee hours of the day, we rolled out a bunch of new updates and tweaks for PERRLA Complete.   Most of the updates iron out a few details with papers  Here are the details:

Citations & References
We’ve gotten rid of the Citations tab inside Papers and updated the References tab to include all of your citations alongside the reference they are for.  Now you don’t have to bounce back and forth between the two to manage all of your paper’s sources.  This also frees up some space for us to introduce some great new features in the future.

Paper Overview Tab
Just like on the Class, we’re introducing a Paper Overview tab so that you can get a look at your paper’s most important information quickly.  This is just our first step in this direction.  We’ve got some really helpful features in the works that we’ll be rolling out soon.

Reference Tweaks
New edit windows!  Now when you need to edit a Reference, you’ll get a pop-up window to make the right adjustments without having to leave the page you were on.  Woo hoo!  We’ve also made some minor viewing adjustments to how we show your references.  We had a few customers run into trouble when pasting items across platforms.  All those kinks should be ironed out.

Google Said What???
We squashed some bugs that were trying to infiltrate our Google lines of communication.  Nothing left but bug jelly on the bottom of our digital boot.

Paper Writing Update
In addition to these and a few other small things, we’ve also been making solid progress on our online paper writing tool!  It’s all still under wraps, but things are starting to take shape 🙂

That’s it for this update.  We hope that these changes make PERRLA Complete even better!

The Syllabus Challenge

Some marketing claims are just that… “claims”.

When we said you could import your entire semester’s worth of Assignments, Papers, To-Do’s, Exams, and Reminders in less time than it takes to bake some Bagel Bites.  We weren’t blowing smoke. See for yourself.

The Rules:

  1. It must take less than14 minutes to import any syllabus – the time it takes to bake Bagel Bites in an oven (16 minutes in a toaster oven).
  2. The syllabi are from real students at liberal arts, professional, and online colleges/universities, including: Biology, Nursing, Art, English Literature, Social Work, Archaeology, Political Science, International Politics, and Information Technology.
  3. The syllabi come from Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. programs.
  4. Graysen (the user in the video) hasn’t read or practiced with any of the syllabi prior to recording – but he does know how to use the Syllabus Tool.
